Remastering of shnid 28609: using Adobe Audition, I repitched tracks 6-12 to match the rest of the show, and severely attenuated (by about 35 dB) the horrible booming resonance centered at about 215 Hz, most objectionable during Good Lovin'. I moved the track marker for the beginning of NFA to match more closely the change of source tape.
Only tracks 5-12 are different from 28609

An excellent Truckin' kicks into an awesome Dark Star.
The Dew from earlier in the set is holy.

The peak of Grateful Dead inventiveness
Frankly, there are some Hunter-Garcia jam vehicles that I love (Dark Star in particular and the one here is fabulous), but the acidfyied, psychedilicized, Deadified transformations of great rock and R & B hits like Dancing in the Streets, Not Fade Away, & Good Lovin' are the essence of their greatness, and this was them at their creative peak!!!!!!! I saw some of these shows at the Capitol so many years ago and they still get me shaking, whoa !!!!!

Thanx Ken and Judy. I have always loved this show, in fact a personal favorite. Dark Star is out there! I only have been dling flac and would love to see the full show in this format. Bless you for what is there. I have more of this set on tape and the dynamic is quite different, a richer, almost stereo sounding, but still would not call it better sounding, just different. I love the audience vibe on decent recordings of this era. A bit of cultural history with some of the banter. I have long thought Bob was tripping balls at this show. Peace
